Dhadhin dhubayndi

Body posters/pictures.

Batchelor Press have produced dhirrabuu Gamilaraay and Yuwaalaraay body-part posters, links below. Maarubaa/thanks a lot Hilary, who has been talking to Batchelor for some time to get these. Madja that the Yuwaalaraay dhadhin nguludhi ‘face poster’ has dhurrun for hair (of head) rather than dhaygal. In Aboriginal languages the same word is often used for head and hair of head, and there are often a number of different words for hair, depending where it is on the body.
